The school has a lot of potential and is pretty good, in spite of what others may say. It offers multiple classes and even some for students who want to go into the workforce right after high school. It has a wide range of vocational classes and electives, along with the standard, mandatory courses. Most of the teachers and administrators are friendly, but I wish they would improve on informing all of their students about special events or circumstances since they usually inform us too late or with little information.

Texas High School is a phenomenal school. The amount of opportunities that are available at Texas High School is incredible. These opportunities allow you to gain more knowledge and even get to explore various activities that may lead to your specific career field. The staff and administration at Texas High School leave such a meaningful touch in your life. They are so caring, loving, and are always about the success of their students. I can't even imagine attending another high school in my area or even in the state of Texas. The relationships that you get to build at this school with teahers, administration, coaches, and peers leaves you feeling no other way, but loved. i have to say this scchool is one of a kind. I was the homecoming queen and senior drum major of the band for the school year 2019-2020. texas High also has the BEST award winning student council!!!! I'm so glad I went to THS!
